CALGARY - Conservative MP Jason Kenney says he has "an important announcement" to make in Calgary on Wednesday.

There have been rumours that the Calgary MP might try to unite Alberta's two right-leaning provincial parties.

However, Alberta's Progressive Conservatives have said they aren't keen to merge, while the Wildrose has said it would be happy to link up, but only under its banner and only with its leader, Brian Jean, calling the shots.

The Wildrose was launched by disaffected Tories about a decade ago.

Alberta's Progressive Conservatives say they will pick a new leader next spring.

The race officially launches Oct. 1 in Lethbridge, Alta., with the vote on March 18 in Calgary.
